What sad news. Stan played in the first match I ever saw, but that must be true of a generation of Altrincham supporters as he played for the club for years, and became the club's then record appearance holder (two players have since played more).
I remember him as a very dependable right back, but he also managed several clubs, most successfully at Witton Albion.
